Go Bananas!

What do bananas have in common with eggs, salmon, and spinach? Hint: a vitamin that's great for your colon.

Science shows that simply getting your share of Vitamin B6 could cut your risk of colon and rectal cancer. A lot.

Big Time B Benefits
In one of the largest studies to date on B6 and colon health, people with the highest intake of the vitamin -- from food and supplements -- reduced their risk of colorectal cancer by 20 to 30 percent. And this study is just one of many showing a benefit. Researchers suspect that B6's role in the metabolism of
folate -- another colon-friendly B vitamin -- might explain the protective effects.

A healthy colon is just one reason to load up on B6-rich foods. The mighty vitamin might also help stave off Parkinson's disease and depression.

Enjoy a peaceful weekend.
